Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves SEX/NUDITY 1

 – A man kisses a woman on the cheek. A large beast leans over a woman and speaks to her suggestively.
 A man tells a woman, “I could kiss you,” and she says, “Try.” A reference is made to friends becoming lovers.
 A woman’s vest reveals cleavage and bare shoulders. A man steps out of a bathtub wearing a towel around his waist (we see his bare chest, abdomen and legs). A woman’s low-cut dress reveals cleavage.

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves VIOLENCE/GORE 5

 – Men on horseback ride past a man in a village, and he charges into his home where he finds his wife dying from a stab wound; the man finds his infant child hidden behind a wall, and we see a cloth wrapped body burning on a pyre. Two wizards fight, one is stabbed, they continue fighting and one cuts the other’s throat (we see blood spurt). A woman is shown with a dagger in her chest and she pulls it out before slumping over dead. Several people are chased by guards and a woman fights with many of them, slashing them with a sword, a large ax and a sledgehammer; we see one man fall into molten liquid (we don’t see the result) and the woman is punched in the face a couple of times.
 Many people are taken to an arena where a maze raises out of the ground and they must run through, gathering weapons, before being devoured by giant creatures: a woman’s leg is grabbed by a monster’s long tongue and a young woman cuts the tongue with a sword and a man is attacked by a giant leopard as the man swings a mace at it; a man and a young woman get stuck in an acid gel, the young woman pulls free and the man is shown later as a skeleton held in the gel. A battle sequence shows many people fighting with swords and bows as a giant dragon flies overhead spraying people with something (it looks like stones); one man is shot through the back of the head by an arrow and another is slashed by a person on horseback.
 A man with a sword fights with several guards wearing armor (his sword glows with magic); one guard is thrown over a stone wall. A horse changes into an “owl-bear” and it attacks people preparing to kill a woman. People in a cave are chased by a creature with a bill and large teeth; it gets stuck and snaps at them as they try to get away with several close calls, and it blows something from its mouth that ignites a flame and blows the people out of the cave (we see them OK later). A man and a woman are forced to their knees as another man raises an axe to behead them; the woman uses a paver stone to deflect the blade and fights off many other guards using blades and sledgehammers as well as throws and kicks; the man eventually frees himself and hits one guard with a stringed instrument knocking him out. A young woman is struck in the back of the head and knocked out.
 A wizard conjures giant octopus tentacles and they wrap around three people. Many dark tendrils swirl out of the sky toward an arena filled with people and a wizard floats overhead chanting a spell to kill them all; we see several people foaming at the mouth and overwhelmed by smoke. A wizard floats into the air and swirls around in red smoke that spreads across many people as we hear that he is stealing their souls; many people run screaming and a child is left without his parents as they are overtaken by the cloud (they lunge for the child but the child gets away). A wizard floats in the air and throws explosives that blow up and send fire around people on the ground, an owl-bear creature attacks the wizard, who kicks it away; a dragon statue becomes animated and lunges toward people, and a woman slashes at it with a sword, the dragon fights the owl-bear, pulls a man by a rope around his ankles, turns back to stone and collapses on top of the man with its mouth open and straddling his face. Two wizards fight with giant disembodied hands and one snaps the thumb off the other.
 Several people dig up several graves to ask the buried bodies questions; we see the bodies in varying states of decay with one person’s eye dangling out of a socket and one missing his body from the waist down. A large beast leans over toward a woman and speaks to her suggestively; the woman kicks the beast in both knees bending them backward, then slams the beast’s head against a stone (the beast is knocked unconscious and falls against a bucket that we are told is filled with urine; we do not see the contents). Four people dive into an acid gel cube, one changes into a snake, slithers out, and then changes into a young woman and pulls the others free (they all complain of their skin burning but we don’t see any damage).
 A man and a woman push a giant bird creature through a window and they fall from a tall tower until the bird swoops them to safety just before crashing. Five people in a wagon speed away as they are chased by men on horses and one man whips one of the men on a horse and they get away. People break into a place where they steal amulets and magic stones; guards enter and they fight with punches, kicks and swords until two of them are trapped in a force field and we then see them in prison. A man steps out of a bathtub and slips in mud, falls back, hits his head on the tub and dies. A young man puts on a magic helmet and he sees people dissolve as he speaks to a long-dead relative and when he removes the helmet he is thrown and he moans.
 A woman is shown tied to a tree and we hear a man says that she is sentenced to death; she is then cut free. A young woman with a weapon threatens a man, a woman and a young man. A man holds a dagger to a pre-teen girl’s throat and a woman throws a potato at the man distracting him. An owl-bear slams a woman on the ground repeatedly and then tosses her against a wall like a rag doll. A woman screams and points at a fly in a room that buzzes away, and shape-shifts into other beings including a bird, a mouse, a cat and a deer while being chased and shot at by guards. A man’s face, head and body stretch unnaturally, as he plays a musical instrument and sings to distract guards at a gate. A man and a woman sink into a sand pit in a floor when they try to attack a man. A young man does magic tricks on a stage, distracting the audience members so that he can steal from them; the audience members attack him and he does a trick that sends them all to the ceiling, a man grabs the young man and says, “You’re a dead man,” the young man propels himself through a window in the ceiling and lands on a horse outside to get away. A man runs through a dark forest and falls off a ledge, and moans on the ground. A man tries to jump out of a window but it has been bricked up and he falls to the floor moaning.
 A cave is filled with skulls and bones. A woman decays and we see her flesh turn ashen and her eyes turn very dark. A woman does a magic spell and turns the end of her finger to ice to put it in a cup of boiling hot tea to cool it. A giant fish is caught in a net and a man reaches inside its mouth and pulls out a small cat, returns it to a large cat (presumably its mother) and walks away. Several people lower themselves into a hole in the ground by a rope and walk through dark caverns, where we see unusual creatures moving around in the dark; a few of the creatures are shaped like brains with legs and arms and we are told that they eat people to get to their brains.
 Prisoners are shown chopping ice on a work detail. Horses pull a cage across frozen ground and a giant beast in chains is led out by armed guards and into a prison. Lava bubbles out of a mound on the ground near where a man and a woman ride horses. A giant spider climbs a tree in a forest. A man seems scared by a dragonfly and tries to catch it or kill it. Two crab-like creatures walk along a beam fighting over something as people walk under them.
 A man talks about being a spy and stopping bandits. We hear that a woman was cast out of her tribe for loving a man and that was not considered acceptable. People talk about a magic stone that can be used to bring people back from the dead. A man says that a monster ate a man’s upper body. A pre-teen girl reprimands her father for leaving her to chase wealth. A woman yells in anger. A young woman describes people being destroyed after questioning how a man came to power. We hear that a man is living in exile. A woman says that she will, “Split him right down the middle.” People talk about “ill-gotten booty.” A woman tells a man that his lips are too big for his face.
 A man points to a bucket in a prison stall and identifies it as a urinal.

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
